Pesticides are very widely and successfully used in land-based industries. Pesticides are potentially harmful substances and it is essential that they are handled, applied and stored by people who have received proper training. The regulations require employers to ensure that pesticides are applied only by employees who have received appropriate training in their safe use. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.
Vermin infestation can afflict the best-run businesses, and dealing with it effectively requires knowledge and skill. Because many of the treatments involve the use of poisonous substances, it is essential that pest control is carried out by people who have received proper training.
Anyone with the responsibility for the management of boundaries, as well as farm workers and other land-based workers may require boundary maintenance training.
